Honey tek contams
    #1601464 - 06/02/03 03:04 PM (13 years, 6 months ago)

Sorry for the double post: I just wanted to make sure I put this in the main forum rather than just the contam forum. This gets a ton of traffic, so I figured someone might be able to answer this for me ...

I'm having problems with the honey tek it seems. I've tried three times, I still havent thrown them out, cuz I was hoping you'd be able to help. But I think I failed three times. There are globs/strands of off-white forming that look a little like mucus. Thats the best way I can describe it. I opened it up to see if it smelled. And it did smell kinda funky. Is this normal for the honey tek? Is it a lost cause? If I messed up, what can I do to help prevent this?

I dont think there is enough info to give you much advice other than keep an eye on your jars and if what you believe is contam. continues toss them. Did you sterilize your honey water? 

Good Luck! :grin:

I steralized one. But it still has that bunk smell. Only one has strong growth. But it reeks. And the stuff is floating inside, not clinging to the walls. Its my first time. I have no clue what I'm doing.

Just give it some more time and if stuff does'nt work out just be happy that you came out with that one. :smile: If you do have to end up tossing them you can use your 1 healthy cake and cut off a couple chunks of mycelium and spawn some more cakes if you want. I did that, and it worked out great. The jars that I spawned off of that one healthy cake colonized so quick and everything turned out for the best. The most important thing is that you want to make sure that your tek is steril. :wink:
